I enjoy working with Alan on every project we get to collaborate on. Alan is definitely led by, and has vast knowledge on the science of User Experience and challenges everything to ensure any product is absolutely right for the end user.

All devs, techies and business folk should work with a UX engineer and I would highly recommend Alan in that role.

He is also a thoroughly nice chap and a pleasure to work with.
